Royal Princess Cruise Review by Hal1991

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: May 2019
  • Destination: Pacific Coastal
  • Cabin Type: Balcony

I had been on two princess cruises in the past both excelent, so when i saw this repositioning cruise pop up with its final destination right in my home city I decided it was a must. The ship itself was beautiful, the restaurants and service within those restaurants were wonderful, but the service at the bars and by the pools were pathetic. My bf purchased the alcohol package and i purchased the unalcoholic drink package, and trying to get drinks was like pulling teeth. you would order from a server after spending about 15 mins trying to wave one down and wait about 30mins before you got the drink or just left, even when you went to the bar you would wait 5-10mins, not because someone was infront of you but because the bartenders would first ignore you, then move in slow motion to make your drink.

The activities on board were pretty pathetic aswell.. but this may be because the average age on the ship seemed to be in the 70s (we were not expecting this). There was knitting and painting and when there was volleyball planned the nets didn't even get set up because so few people showed up.

The comedian AJ was great and was the highlight of our week. The other entertainment was good.

Cabin Review

Cabin BC b104

The cabin was really nice, not the best location as it was a bit of a walk to get the elevators.
